Abandon thermal power stations: Experts

Zimbabwe should abandon its old thermal power stations, which have become a major financial drain and invest in brand new projects to ensure a steady supply of electricity, energy experts say.

This comes as the Zimbabwe Power Company (ZPC) – an electricity generation unit of Zesa Holdings – says it requires US$5,3 billion to recapitalise its power plants and construct new ones.

ZPC’s electricity generation plants are old resulting in power generation and distribution disruptions.
